3/4/05 M66 Spiral Galaxy in Leo

Perhaps the most well known of the Leo Trio. I got most of the Luminance for this shot on the night of February 5th but I wanted to go a little deeper and got more luminance and the color data on Marsh 4th. 5 minute subexposures reduced and combined in CCDSoft, DDP and LR deconvolution using ImagesPlus, levels and curves done in PS. High clouds helped cause some gradient problems.
